“Good in many parts, but....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We took the two day Kwai River trip with this agency. Correspondence before the day was good, but we were surprised not to be told that a video photographer would be going, too. It was just the two of us, therefore, plus driver, guide and cameraman - overkill, we thought. We made clear we didn't want the video but were followed around all day and had to view the results that evening and make a decision about being filmed the next day. We found this an awkward situation and the young man was so nice and helpful that although we didn't want the video we felt we had to tip him along with the driver and guide.

The tour itself was generally good, the driver very safe and the guide friendly and informative but not overbearing. We enjoyed the places we visited with the exception of the temple complex that was our first stop. This was modern and ugly and of little interest. Hellfire Pass, the military cemetery in Kanchanaburi and the train journey were all touching and memorable.

However, the worst part of this trip - which rather spoiled the whole thing for us - was the overnight stop at the raft 'resort'. The rooms were awful, the only furniture was the beds, no chair or table to put anything on, no place to hang clothes. The lighting in the bathroom was so dim my husband could not shave. And it was cold. The single blanket supplied was not enough and we kept waking up in the night cold and miserable. There was no place inside to eat breakfast, so we shivered and ate leftover cold fried eggs and lukewarm coffee at 8.00am in the open.

The company may have chosen this place as an attractive, quiet spot on the river, but there were about 90 European tourists there going up and down the river on three rafts pulled by noisy and smelly boats as soon as we arrived. After that, they were laid out flat in turn on about 30 mattresses for massage. Not very peaceful and too cheap and nasty an option for the money we paid; it was called Sai Yok River Rafts ( or similar) and is not even on Trip Advisor!

I would recommend the tour with reservations. If you don't want to be photographed make it clear before you go - and find out about your overnight accommodation in advance.

“The best service you can imagine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We have joined 3 pieces of day Tours arranged by Huahin Adventure Tours.
HH05 Kaeng Krachan National Park and Boat Tour
HH07 Kayaking at Khao Daeng
HH09 Snorkeling at Koh Ta Lu
We have had the best service, drivers, guides and foods on all of our tours.
The guides are very well in English and tell about the culture and surrounding environment, Plants, foods and animals. Ask and you get an answer.
The information about the tours was very good, we even got a reminder to remember our towels at the Snorkeling at Koh Ta Lu.. Very nice.
We asked Huahin Adventure tour about ordering tickets to the train from Bangkok to Hua Hin. This was arranged by Huahin Adventure Tours and the train tickets was send to our hotel in Bangkok. Perfect service..
We had planned to have a short visit in Bangkok before we arrived our hotel nearby the airport. But due to fact of the demonstrations we found this was a bad idea. The tour from our hotel in Hua Hin to our airport hotel in Bangkok was arranged by Huahin Adventure Tours. This was done in very short time.
Our general experience with Huahin Adventure Tours is as follow: Even though they have their ordinary tours, they are willing in helping you with all your needs..
We are looking forward in using them next time we are visiting Hua Hin... Allready now we dream of an overnight tour in Kaeng Krachan National Park next time..

“Superb service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

We enjoyed "Elephant Watching Tour". Our driver and guide were excellent. We learned a lot about elephants during this tour. The dinner was included in the price and it was lovely.
We watched elephants from 4 to 6. Staying in the same place in the national park. It was no hiking involved, and not needed. Binoculars were provided.
We were picked up and drop off at our hotel.
While we were driving to National park and back, our guide (lovely young lady) did an excellent job informing us about Thai culture.

“Great customer service”

We had booked a tour to see the wild elephants, and when the park was unexpectedly closed the tour company rang, and then came the next day to refund our deposit. The guide also gave me a map and talked through other things we could see on our own in the area. Impressive.

“Pa-La-U Waterfall Elephant Riding and Kayaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Had a group of 8 adults and 2 child. Guides took extra care of the child and the service was very good over the whole trip. Both guides spoke good English and other guide used video camera over the whole trip to shoot a quality video DVD of our adventure. One of the best day trip experiences ever.
